Grandaughter, or other family members reading?...please look into the possibility of this ITALIAN missing person's television show running a story on your family. I think the possible Palermo connection and the "Louis Sodder" photo sent years later would be VERY intriguing to the producer and the viewers of this show!!! If any of the children were moved to Italy...this show might help you find some answers. Don't hesitate...it is a very long airing show and hopefully you can get the Sodder Children story on it before it goes off the air. The show has an associated website, which also might help you publicize the case in Italy. See below. I pray this show will air your family's story and that it will lead to some answers for you. http://www.chilhavisto.rai.it/dl/clv/index.html From Wikipedia http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chi_l'ha_visto?
